PSYCH 500
Seattle Campus

Proseminar in Psychology

Presentations on professionally and practically useful topics by guest faculty presenters designed for first-year and second-year graduate students. Prerequisite: graduate standing in psychology, or permission of instructor. Credit/no-credit only.

Class description

The goal of this class is to provide an informal forum in which students can be introduced to the UW psychology community and trained in professionalization and ethics. The goal is for students to obtain multiple perspectives on research, scientific integrity and career development from members of the UW Psychology community. Most of the classes will involve a free form discussion with postdocs and members of the UW faculty. Some somewhat more formal lectures on topics like time management, grant-writing, professional ethics, lab management and how to give a good talk will also be offered.
